The daffs and tulips are budding up nicely, and although it’s still very cold the sun is bursting through so it feels promising. I absolutely love this time of year, you notice everything, each new bud and change. Just like our website which is really starting to bloom with over 50 pages, 75 published posts and all included in the calendar. We’ve included useful links, a photo gallery and now have 181 people following the posts by email, blog, twitter and facebook.
When I started the newsfeed (blog) last August I knew we needed something to include all the village activity in between the quarterly printed editions of Horley Views. Little did I know how it was going to take off, especially when I was joined by Di Marriott. Now with Di running our new village website we have one online place for all our latest news, upcoming events and information.

The Latest News from Horley Footlights: Although we are still short of two men (anyone interested?), rehearsals for the summer production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” have started. So far, the fairies have learnt a dance and know what they are going to wear (!) and are now embarking on getting to grips with the music, under the inspired direction of David Kyle. The “Mechanicals” are practising being sillier than usual, and Oberon, Titania and Puck are already showing promise at being quixotic, feisty, and impish. At the time of writing, the Athenian Nobility have had one very productive rehearsal and I have high hopes for them– that is, if we can find the missing male lovers! Tessa Howell
